Green smoothies are the rage and I am totally on board. My energy levels are 100% better, the afternoon low points disappeared and better yet, my skin is much nicer. Weight has never been much of an issue but I know those green smoothies are helping others. So addicted am I that no day goes by without the green smoothie.
So what do do when traveling? I searched the internet high and low for the perfect solution but came up empty handed. How do you travel and maintain those green smoothies? After two tries, I can claim success. On the road smoothies do require some pre-planning but hey, so does life.
I purchased the Magic Bullet - is there a better option? Let me know if you are an expert and can recommend a different machine. All the Magic Bullet accessories went into long term storage, who needs all that stuff anyway? The blender was packed along with my clothes. I even took a picture for you!
I packed a small lunch bag with two apples, one avocado, greens, chia seeds, 2 packets stevia and a paring knife. (Yes plan on checking this bag). That is it. The smoothies were not my best but so much better than the Holiday Inn breakfast offerings. I used water as the base, the stevia helped to make the smoothie tasty. The good part was the little refrigerator in the room. Not really necessary in a pinch, the greens would have survived with out it.
I am sure there are some true experts out there, please pass those ideas along!
